With LLBA's best lash extensions, zero makeup is required to beat the heat. Our professionals have jotted down top essential lash products for best retention during summer.
High Humidity Adhesive
Your lash extension adhesive must be utilized in optimal circumstances. When the humidity level is between 40 and 60 percent, the adhesives perform wonderfully. If the humidity in the surroundings fluctuates dramatically throughout the day, the glue may dry faster or slower than expected.
The essential element in any lash glue is cyanoacrylate, which is found in all lash extension glues. This component guarantees that the lash adhesive dries rapidly and stays put for several weeks. Cyanoacrylate, on the other hand, does not begin to cure unless moisture is present. Basically, humidity acts as an 'activator' for the attachment of lash extension adhesive. If you're working in a high-humidity environment, you might want to pursue:
- The use of a dehumidifier and the elimination of extra moisture from the air around you.
- Transitioning to a slow-curing glue
- Replacing your glue drop every 15 to 30 mins
- Using a hygrometer since it shows the humidity level and temperature of the room.
- Ventilating the salon in between appointments
Higher humidity causes the cyanoacrylates to cure faster, whereas lower humidity causes the curing process to take longer. High temperatures and humidity in humid climates cause sweating and increased oil production in the skin. Hence lash artists should select an adhesive with a slow drying time and medium viscosity from LLBA's best lash extension products.
Long gone are those days when lash artists had to shake their glue by hand – it was exhausting, might put glue in the lid and could make the whole process messy if done incorrectly! Shaking the adhesive by hand is no longer required; instead, an adhesive shaker is the way to go! Shaking by hand accomplishes little and takes much longer than using a glue shaker. If you shake the bottle by hand, you must aggressively shake it for at least a minute to ensure that all of the glue's ingredients are completely blended and that your glue will operate and act as planned. You can minimize the time it takes to shake with an adhesive shaker. Anything that is shaken with centrifugal force produces improved blending results. It produces a far more complete mix, ensuring that your glue is flawless from beginning to end. No more reduction in quality halfway through the bottle because you've used up all the good stuff.
It is essential that the adhesive is stored in a good adhesive container because the environment plays a huge role in how the adhesive works. Maintain a great environment for all of your adhesives! Our storage container holds up to three bottles and keeps excess moisture at bay. This aids in the best lash extension application.
If you have trouble controlling the temperature or humidity in your lashing room, this will keep your glue out of direct sunshine and provide consistency. To get the most out of the silica gel, place it within the bottom of the container. We hope these adhesive recommendations are beneficial and point you in the right direction. It may be necessary to test a few of these suggestions to figure out what works for you and your environment.
Lash Bath Kit
Our trademark purifying lash foam, LLBA Lash Bath or Lash Cleanser, is developed exclusively for eyelash extension clients. It's suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry skin. It softly removes all makeup, even waterproof makeup, without drying lashes or skimming the surface of the skin. Lash professionals can use it both before and after the treatment. Following the pre-treatment wash, rinse with saline and then with distilled water after the post-treatment wash. Apply the foam, wait 30 seconds, then remove all eye makeup before rinsing.
